Well that BLOWS.... if Black box are gonna continue working on NFS...might as well they shut down the NFS brand anyway....gahh....only if Criterion could have taken over.

TheColbertinator5687d ago

Criterion taking over Need For Speed would be a dream come true

Danja5687d ago

Criterion will be working on the next NFS game...I read an article about it on N4G couple day back..too lazy to look for it though..XD

xwabbit5687d ago

Oh that would be awesome!!!

Speed-Racer5686d ago

@Danja - No, that was only speculation. I know what you're talking about as well...but no, Criterion isn't taking over. Theyre just moving.

they just moved to different building in 2009

RainOfTerror5687d ago

yea, they never said they were closing the studio, the press release specifically said that they are moving the devs and ip to another location.

All you did was jump to conclusions, and did not read the official statement properly.

Heldrasil5687d ago

Most people go by what the title says, and I don't blame them. The blame should be labeled on the ass that made the incorrect assumption through naming the post.

TIKUP5687d ago

YESSSSSSSSSSS they havnt closed because i really want skate 2!!!!

Xman12315686d ago

The 7 Best Skateboarding Games

Since the mid-90s, skateboarding games have remained a popular past time. But which are the best skateboarding games?

MasterChief3624354d ago

There is no way in hell they put the cover of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 as the thumbnail for "best skateboarding games." Good Lord.

ChiefofLoliPolice354d ago

Not the game that needs to be the thumbnail.

ChiefofLoliPolice354d ago

Oh dear God the OG TH games are amazing. THUG 1 2 and THAW were badass. It's hard to pick. The EA Skate games were amazing too especially Skate 3.

Never got the chance to play Session or Skate XL but I want to try.

As far as classics...the THUG games and Pro 4 were my favs. I still play those games on my OG Xbox to this day!

Abear21354d ago

Smh still no Skate on PlayStation 4 or 5. All these new budget skateboarding games are glitched trash. The new Skate will be good, but nothing will give me that crazy feeling like OG skate demo, that was a revelation

I'm sure R* knows the Nintendo Switch install base and probably dont really care to port over more R* games to the Nintendo Switch tho i gotta say playing GTA4 & RDR1 on the go on the Nintendo Switch would be dope

Knightofelemia734d ago

I would buy Lollipop Chainsaw, Alice Madness Returns, Enslaved, Splatter House, Brutal Legends, Dante's Inferno, and Dead Space for sure if they were ported to the Switch.

Mobis-New-Nest734d ago

Deus Ex Human Revolution would be a great title to The Holy Grail of All Consoles aka The Nintendo Switch*. Also Haze Remastered, Grand Theft Auto 4 and 5 Remastered, Silent Hill HD Collection, Max Payne 3 Remastered, Call of Duty World At War Remastered, The Orange Box Remastered, Halo Master Chief Collection, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 Remastered, Metal Gear Solid 4 Remastered, Afro Samurai Remastered, Demons Souls Remastered, Xmen Destiny Remastered, Jack and Daxter Collection, Def Jam Icon Remake, Folklore Remastered, Spiderman Edge of Time Remastered, Persona 5 remastered, the list goes on. (*Best Selling Console of All Time)

MontyeKristo734d ago (Edited 734d ago )

Can we just get a Bully 2? 😒

iplay1up2734d ago

Seriously? Isn't it time Nintendo make a Switch successor? I mean they have the sales and money.

Game awards skate gameplay? I’d be hyped. All I’ve asked for over the years from EA is a skate sequel and a dead space 1 remaster. If they nail these games me and EA are cool. Clean slate, no hate. Do they make really dumb moves all too often? Yes. But It’s not like they are activision blizzard.

Michiel1989972d ago

throw in battle for middle-earth 1-2 remastered with multiplayer servers running and im game
